Huskies player shocked by defibrillator, hospitalized
SEATTLE -- Washington guard Kayla Burt was taken to a hospital as a precaution Thursday night after her heart defibrillator activated early in the first half of the Huskies' game against UCLA.
"She's aware, alert, responsive,'' said Jeff Compher, Washington's executive associate athletic director.
Compher said he could hear Burt cheering in the background when he called the UW Medical Center to check on her during the game. The Huskies beat the Bruins 96-75.
